We spent some hours digging trenches for the irrigation system this week. Hard work - no two ways about it! Our soil is mostly clay - and has chunks of old asphalt, bricks & concrete. We all are sore.

The pathways are progressing as well. The part of the pathway shown below is made of 'urbanite' (pieces of recycled concrete paving) set in decomposed granite. It looks pretty nice, is inexpensive and lets rainwater infiltrate into the soil. The next section of paving - as well as the patio area - will be made of sandstone (see above on pallets).
